    • Sync Office365 security groups to SharePoint groups

      Add a function to sync Office365 Security Groups to SharePoint groups. Currently, there is no way for third-party applications to query membership of an Office365 group in SharePoint. Syncing these groups would allow them to do so.

          Hello everyone,
          Greetings from a Berlin, Germany and have a nice day.
          I would like to make a suggestion concerning the dictation concept in Word.
          What if the machine could learn my kind of speaking and dictating not only online but also offline with certain things I have to read so that the Programm can learn my style of speaking and dictating and can improve in recognising & understanding my speech and voice and so on?
          I usually have my systems switched from German to English but use the Programm Word of course in the German language for the usual…

            • Create a new group requires moderation

              To create a new Office365 group should require moderation by a user. Office365 groups can be called absolutely anything, and this is open to abuse, especially with students. They can call their group any name, for example the name of a senior staff member. Then emails that accidentally get sent to that account get sent to the group instead of the staff member.
              To allow creation of an Office365 group, a moderator could be assigned to check the name is acceptable before the group is created.

                • Guests Need Collaboration Rights

                  Our director uses an email address from our parent organization. That organization also has an Office365 system. I wanted to add him as a contributing guest to one of our Office365 groups, but guests to groups currently are only allowed read-only permissions. I would like to see an option to allow an external guest editing permissions since we can give editing rights to onedrive documents to external guests.

                          • Enable Restore of Group from O365 Admin Center

                            The steps outlined in this article for restoring an Office 365 group from the Exchange Admin center do not seem to work:

                            According to the article, when an Office 365 Group is restored from the Exchange Admin center, all of its related content is also restored such as the smtp address, aad security group, shared mailbox, sharepoint online team site, onenote notebook, planner, and Yammer if connected.

                            When visiting the Exchange Admin Center and hitting the link to restore the group, a pop-up says "You're about to restore a deleted group. All of the groups conversations, files, notebooks, and…

                                    • Disable Conversation view

                                      If it is possible to disable conversation view and use email view, it would be much easier to search. This view ability would also more closely mimic public folders for those of us migrating from there.

                                      • wegen fehlender umfassender Offline-Arbeit auf Android Ebene ist das Programm Schrott

                                        Bei Verwendung unter Android zumindest für Word eine unfassende Möglichkeit, uneingeschränkt offline Dokumente zu bearbeiten/speichern zulassen.
                                        Fühle mich als jahrelanger Costumer von 365 gegängelt, ebenfalls alle anderen in der Familie, die auch gern mit der Lizens auf Android Basis arbeiten wollen. Was da so modern verkauft wird und letzlich für mich ein Onlinezwang darstellt ist genau betrachtet lebensfern und in seiner realen Auswirkung antiqiuert. Laßt die dafür Verantwortlichen Mitarbeiter lieber Straßen fegen. Ich finde das einfach schamlos.
